Hi

I’m planning a day trip from Bern to Interlaken via train on Saturday the 28th of December, looking at the funicular routes around Interlaken it looks like most close for winter, are there routes open in winter and doable on a day trip eg Jungfraujoch?

Regards

Peter

Jungfraujoch is open year round. It’s a railway not a funicular. See www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfraujoch/gettingther e.

It’s ski season. All the cable ways will be operating as well.

It's quite the opposite. Everything will be open as it is the main ski season. However it will be busy as it is Christmas/New Year, and sharing cable cars etc with skiers when you are not a skier can be a challenge

Hi Peter,

There will be enough to do in the winter months in and around Interlaken, whereas some places are indeed closed, e.g. Schynige Platte. Find activities in the Jungfrau Region in below link and input about "dates of operation" in the "route" tab of each destination you find.

You can also mostly rely on the timetable, meaning, if you find connections for a specific date and trip, the transportation is running, if not, then not.

We're here for further input.

Best,
Steph
